Bug in the Webster's dictionary (?)
Or rather in the .conf file (mods.d/websterdict.conf):
why use shareware font CODE2000?

My advice for everybody using this module: change font (or tell me the reason for CODE2000 here, please...)

Brgds.

Re: Bug in the Webster's dictionary (?)
The Webster's dictionary module makes very extensive use of the Unicode codepoint range. Even a font that aims to support the entire BMP (basically the first 64k characters of Unicode), as Code 2000 aims to, will not completely support the range of codepoints used in this module. However, it does support more characters than any other font I have found. You are free to change to a different font, such as Arial Unicode MS (which is a commercial font, available with MS Office, but also has excellent codepoint coverage for those who like Sans Serif fonts), but you will see more boxes than users of Code 2000.

In any case, we will continue to ship the module with the recommendation that people use Code 2000 (at least on Windows). I know it is ugly for Latin, but it is most complete.
